Abstract

Single layer TiAlN and alternate TiN/TiAlN multilayered hard coatings were deposited on Si, plain carbon steel and high-speed steel substrates by the cathodic arc technique. Chemical composition, phase composition, texture, Vickers microhardness, adhesion, bilayer period, sliding friction coefficient and wear resistance were investigated by XPS, EDX and XRD analyses, microhardness measurements, scratch and tribological tests.
